Patricia Maisch, one of the people who helped disarm Jared Lee Loughner after his 2011 shooting spree in Tucson, Arizona, appeared on MSNBC on Tuesday to mark the two year anniversary of that tragic attack. She twice told MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts, were it not for the “20 little martyrs” who died in the attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School, new legal restrictions on gun ownership may never have materialized.
Of course, there were only "20 little martyrs" because the only adult in the building with a gun was the killer -- those charged with protecting them were disarmed by law. So if anything, Maisch and those who believe as she does are as responsible for their deaths as Adam Lanza. . . at least if we use the logic that such folks apply to the NRA and law-abiding gun owners.
Personally, I'd prefer to discuss the matter rationally without the anti-gunnites pimping out the dead kids -- because in any rational discussion, those of us who believe in the Second Amendment win.
